When you get tickets for the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Table Tennis contest, you will witness some of the world's best athletes competing for the ultimate glory. The athletes compete in the singles and team events and, introduced in 2020, the new mixed doubles event. 16 pairs compete in the mixed doubles and 16 groups feature in the team events. Very much a game of skill and dexterity, the table tennis players must be light on their feet and quick to respond as the ball flies towards them. Watch as players unleash their best offensive, defensive and spin strokes to claim their place at the top. Notably, the majority of the world’s most respected players hail from China, where the sport has gained huge popularity. The Chinese 2008 team dominated the Games in Indonesia, taking every gold and silver medal home with them. However, table tennis is thought to have originated in Victorian England as a game to be played after dinner by members of the upper-classes. In 1860’s India, it is thought that British military officers stationed there improvised a makeshift game by creating a central dividing ‘net’ made from an upright row of books, and by utilising two further books as bats.
